Peacock expresses concern for area youth Richard Peacock, head of the English Department, will be the Peace and Freedom candidate running against encurnbent John Stull for the office of State Representative for the 80th Congressional district. THE TELESCOPE asked Mr. Peacock to state some of his views and feelings in this interview. "I understand the other day in the Times-Advocate there was a letter to the editor stating concern that my running would interfere with my teaching or something like that. I have always felt that we should all be encouraged to get into politics. ''In a democracy everyone should be concerned , just as we should all volunteer for jury duty. If we feel we have something to say we should engage in the government of our country. "I believe Pendleton beaches should become public beaches. "Of course the voting age should be dropped to eighteen . It has been said so many times it's almost becoming trite. I mean we have some young men
back from Vietnam who are not allowed to vote. Somehow the older people in the community, or in society really, send you out to fight their battles, then they won't give you a voice in government. ''If you want change in government you must work from a base of power. That power can be achieved by voting. There is economic power and I think young people are already influential this way. "If young people want to gain influence in local politics they must first gain respect for their own ideas and this seems to be one thing there is almost a plot to subvert. Newspapers and the news media in general have been generalizing many of the young people's ideas today in such a way as to make them seem as though they are not valid. This causes many you ng people to see themselves as not worthy of having strong opinions and not worthy of following through with them . They need more of a respect for themselves and for their ideas and a confidence in themselves. "A political party is a vehicle for
MR. RICHARD PEACOCK
expression. Sure you can write l etters to your congressman. You have heard that a million times. Another way to go about it is to form a group of people who feel strongly about something- - and that group, why not call it a political party, and why not have a few people continually up front saying constantly what has to be said, someone who is continuall y carrying the ball for you. It's hard to write letters every day. "I'm afraid again it comes down to power and unless you get more power in politics the invested interest around you will control you. "Power and influence are really a psychological thing. I mean you don't step on blacks any more. As an example of economic power, if you don't like what Union Oil did to the shoreline then just start sending around petitions 'Don't buy Union 76, don't buy Union 76', and if that word spreads, they will pull their wells out, because you are demonstrating certain economic power. "Unless you wield this power, Union 76
isn't goi ng to do anything. It's unfortunate you can't appeal to their good faith, their logic, their fair play by saying, 'You are ruining our shores', and they look and say, 'We're sorry', and s top. P nfortunately , it doesn't work that way. "One other thing I'm interested in is local police harassment. This is another big civil rights issue and, again, it seems to me that the reason youth are sought out to be victims of police harassment is that they seem to be rather a powerless group . You don't see cadillacs getting harassed because a cadillac indicates power. It says something about your influence. A VW bus or a '56 Ford doesn't carry very much weight. "\\'hat is really at issue is not a moral thing in terms of harassment, it's just a matter of taste and style. The taste of youth is not the style of older people and the older people want to tra nslate this into moral terms . Because you wear long hair isn't just a matter of (Continued on page two)

Campus ecological garden
utilizes natural cycles A campus garden based on ecological principles is currently being organized in the area behind the cactus garden near the east parking lot. Twenty-five individual plots, each approximately 14 feet wide and 20 feet long, are now available to anyone interested in planting and caring for their own garden. Alex Hinds, a member of the Palomar Pro- Ecology Committee, is acting chairman of the newly- formed organic garde ning Group. "We will run the garden based on continuous natural cycles . That is, everything taken out of the earth must be put back. This whole cycle increases soil fertility," he said. Humus and compost, made up of de-
cayed organic matter, will be used as fertilizers in the garden. Many different crops will be planted and conditions to keep a high resistence to disease and insects will be promoted. No dangerous chemical insecticides or biocides will be used. "We will take advantage of natural predators that will keep harmful insects at a low. Also, certain plants put in the same plot with other plants can keep insects away," Hinds said. Some crops are hoped to be ready for National Environmental Awareness Week also called Earth Week, in late April. The garden is set up so that individuals who sign up get the first try of their produce. However, the cafeteria will be urged to use the excess food in a natural food section. Plots can be run individually or by a group. "There is plenty of available land and we want to encourage anyone who is interested to sign up for a plot. The administration was really good in letting us have the land," commented Hinds. Mr. Warren D. Donahue, faculty adviser working with the ecology garden, and Hinds both indicate a need for shovels, hoes, portable pipe and chicken wire fencing. Those interested in beginning their own plot should bring their own tools. Information is available in room S-12. "Eventually, I would like to see our campus grounds turned into a garden, a self-contained entity, where people could get fresh fruit from trees and food from gardens. Now we have plants and trees that look nice, but more should be feeding us," Hinds said.

Sir Bernard Lovell to speak on ~outer Space Exploration' Sir Bernard Lovell, author and lecturer, professor of Radio Astronomy Laboratories, Jodrell Bank, Cheshire, England, will speak at Palomar on March 31 in a community lecture co-sponsored with Mira Costa College.

worked on radar microwaves and radar television for navigational use on the blind bombing device. Soon after the building of a new radio telescope at Jodrell Bank he began to
Draft prot est to end today Anti-Draft Week activities at Palomar will come to a close today with a draft workshop at ll a.m. in Room R-5. A week of anti-draft activities includi.1g a 'silent vigil' in front of the flagpole Wednesday, were organized by student Frederick Jahnkow. Over 80 signatures were collected on a "We Won't Go" petition which Jahnkow and other student organizers of the week circulated. In an effort to "slow down the draft machinery", the Veterans for Peace Club on campus organized activities to coincide with a national protest. Stamped envelopes were provided all week for draft eligible males. The group encourages young men to submit information that may be pertinent to their draft status to their local board. Jahnkow said that 64 Jette rs have been mailed to draft boards in the first three days of the protest. All the letters reaching draft boards have to be opened, processed. and filed. According to Jahnkow, this contributes to slowing down the drafting process. He commented that some letters asked Selective Service employees to resign.

Lovell has written a number of books, among them, "The Individual and the Universe" and "The Story of Jodrell Bank."

He is a mernher of the Science of 1\esearch Council, Chairman of its Astronomy, Space and 1\adio Board and President of the Royal Astronomical Society. His lecture topic for the program beginning at 8 p.m. in the Student Union is "The Exploration of Outer Space."

SPLIT TWO LEAGUE TILTS
Horsehiders host Saddleback today Coach Jim Clayton' s horsehiders will get i n a regularly scheduled nonconfere nce baseball game against Saddleback College today, plus a make-up game next week against the same club. The make - up contest of a game originally s lated for March 4 will be s lated somet i me during Easter week by Sadd leback offic ial s. Today's game here i s set for 2:3 0 p. m. The Comets evened their conference r ecord at 1-1 Tuesday with a 6- 0 thrashing at the hands of the Grossmont Griffins. The score, however, fails to s hine a proper light on the game. The Griffins tall ied four runs in the second frame without getting to Southpaw Dennis Melton. Two runs, a walk and a hit batsman aided the Griffins four run inning. While Gross mont seemed to be getting most of the breaks the Comets were belting the ball right at the Griffins. "It's a little aggravating to hit the ball as well as we did and not be able to score a run,'' Coach Clayton said. "The ball just didn't fall in for us. Some days it will and some days it won't. This just wasn't our day." In three games last week, Palomar managed only one win, but that win, a 6- 1 victory over Riverside in a conference opener, was the most important of the three. Following the win over the Tigers on a two- hitter by Dennis Melton, the Comets lost to Coll ege of the Desert, 8- 3 in II innings, and the Marine Corps Recruit Depot, 7-4. I f something good can come from a loss, Palomar regained the hitting prowess of shortstop Jimmy Dean and third baseman Alan Conley. Dean homered against the Marines and Conley rapped two hits as both players overcame slow s tarts. Following Easter week, Palomar will play ll straight conference games on a Tuesday-Thursday basis, plus an April 4 nonleaguer against MCRD.
Arche rs beat San Berdoo; point for Paloma r tourney George Plolic shot a 738 in leadinf the outstanding Palomar archers in a win over San Bernardino last week. P locic's 738 scoring is another qualifying score for an All- American nomination. Dan White shot a 712 for third place, while Frank Pallan had a 686 for fourth, and Rick Rissley a 660 for fifth. The Comets' mixed team of Plocic, White , Terry Gibson, and Jannette Lope z also captured a first place. The next large meet will be the Palomar Invitational April 10. Coach Mildred Ayars expects over 100 participants will be competing.
